    To all those who have painted the CW Deadend mold - how on earth did you take the legs apart?

    I can't seem to remove these two pins circled here: http://i.imgur.com/vnZxAOU.jpg
    The top one won't budge, and the bottom one has no hole at the other end to push it through - It's one way only.
    The very top one in the thigh is fine, I don't need to remove it, just the other two.

    Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

    I don't think anything can be done for the bottom hinge, but there is a trick for removing rivets detailed here.

    I've painted the mold four times and never needed to take the legs apart like that. Nothing there really has clearance issues.
    Unless you absolutely need to disassemble them, careful masking is all that's needed.
